In fact, the odds are against you.” -robert greene I picked this quote because teachers are not going to going to hold you hand throughout high school. Their just their just their to teach the students who want to make it in life and some do not care if you pass or not. My grades have changed since I first started high school they were really good at first but then I got side tracked thinking I would pull up my grades last minute. I was horribly wrong and realized that it wasn’t as easy as middle school. My sophomore year was probably the worst because I slacked off and procrastinated but I picked myself up thanks to a little motivation.
No matter how well prepared I would come for a presentation, I would always end up going blank while I am doing my presentation. A situation that I had to fight for years to overcome. It also made me innately shy and prevented me from dating in my teens due to my lack of courage to approach the lady I would like in any
I struggled a lot with that lesson because I was so used to my old ways that I did not want to learn that actual right ways. I eventually got over my stubbornness and learned the rules for where to put the apostrophe. The knowledge in this course has helped me write my research paper for other college class, Dual General Psychology. The knowledge I learned from this class I used a lot to help me write my research paper in there. I think without the knowledge from this class I would not have done as well as I did on that paper.
Knowing how to take critics is an essential in life, knowing how to deal with them is a necessity. I do have to admit that I met so many great people during High School that have support me and helped me, and now I am aware that I wouldn't be here without them. Not everyone will have the best interest in you and once in a while it is important to know that it´s alright. Sometimes the only person you need to achieve success is
Being a person who has the ability to know right from wrong in today's society is very hard since nowadays, everyone does what is known to be as “cool”. The way I was and still am raised, has helped me immensely in this world to stay back from negative things like drugs and bad influences, and lean towards a group of friends that constantly stay on the right path. As a teenager, I am one who does not lie and always stays true to myself. As a result, my parents place a large amount of trust in me which gives
I started receiving compliments from family members and from peers at school. This feeling was alien to me since I was never noticed in that way before. It created a feeling that I wanted to replicate, which made me come up with a plan. I decided I had to continue to lose weight because this was going to end the negativity in school. As a teen what was inspiring me was social expectations and I didn’t realize that losing weight also mean’t lowering my risk of health complications.
As soon as I found out, I asked her if she wanted me to try and help her out. She was very uneasy about the idea of getting help, because she afraid of being made fun of. I started helping her and she started to improve right away. The next year she did care about her classes so I tried to get her to care again but it was no use she just gave up. In college I could be a tutor and help clear the fog away from the brains of some of the students to have them get the grades they want to obtain.
Through this organization, they have been able to join at one of their lowest points in life, and come out stronger than ever before. The alumni continue to prosper and grow from the inside and out due to the guidance they were provided previously. Finding a new identity can be challenging. It may only take a few hours for some, but for others it can take a couple of years! Whenever a person discovers their true identity, they become a distinct version of themselves.
I arrived in this country thinking I was going to be in the most challenging classes and be at the top but reality smacked me in the face the first day I entered eighth grade. To my disadvantage the counselors did not care about my previous grades in Puerto Rico. Seeing that my parents were only able to speak Spanish, the school deduced my English was not well-developed enough and consequently I was placed in English-language learner (ELL) classes. After testing me in reading, writing, and hearing I was
My grades are not spectacular, but they are solid. I am persistent and I complete what I have started. I am a hard worker, I understand college is my opportunity in life, and I will not waste the opportunity. The scholarship will go to good use in helping me achieve my
Since school costed a lot. But still pushed through the rough patch and became stronger as a person. Even when money was a low there was still a smile on her face. Still being happy, still smiling, and never backing down from the problems that wanted to drag her down. Showing me a perfect example for my problems that I would face later downs the road to just stay positive and happy.
After trying for many years to get better grades with little to no success, I gave up on trying and just accepted whatever grade I ended up with. When I got into middle school and started taking classes like Algebra 1 and Spanish that would count for high school credit, it became very apparent to me that the grades that I get in these classes could very easily affect my high school GPA and my ability to get into a college of my choice. It was this realization that pushed me to further improve myself and my better being. During the seventh grade I got diagnosed with ADHD and started a medication regiment that significantly helped me focus and understand the lessons that my teachers were teaching. All of this was great and my grades did significantly improve, but the cons
I’ve always been in Honors classes and get good grades, currently I have a GPA of 3.4 but am striving to better myself and get a 4.0. I try to always have a positive outlook on situations and prepare myself for challenging ones. I have great teamwork skills and I work great with different types of people even disabled/special needs. The philosophy of Capital One is “Hire great people and give them the opportunity to be great.” Meaning give one a chance to see how good they can be. I don’t want just a job at Capital One I want a career with Capital One.
I wasn 't fond of the idea, mostly because all of my friends would be moving on without me. Not to mention who wants to go through an extra year of school. So I was not excited when when my parents told me I may be held back. The one benefit I could think of was that I wouldn’t be at a disadvantage when it comes to sports. Overall I was afraid of what my parents might decide.
